Our first food swap at Glen Park Oaks Community Garden! Look at all the wonderful goodies! 2 things to note.

It started off with coffee grounds. I thought my garden would like to savour some coffee that … Continue reading Let’s celebrate!
We have completed 1 full year of swapping with this swap! And again, we were fortunate to have a beautiful crisp day. We had a small cosy group sharing about what we have in the garden at the moment.
